After an incredibly long and busy Season 10 of “The Voice,” the reality singing competition is finally winding down. With just four contestants left to perform before a winner is crowned, the NBC show went through its biggest elimination round yet on Tuesday.
After the remaining eight artists performed live Monday, it was in the viewing public’s hands to advance its favorite four to the finals and say goodbye to the remainder. On Tuesday, the results were in as host Carson Daly revealed that the first two singers being sent home would be Shalyah Fearing and Paxton Ingram. After impressing their way to the top eight, both failed to really capture the same magic as their competitors in the final night of performances, and so were sent packing.
With six remaining artists, the host read the names of three people that would then advance to the final show. Based on merit alone, the votes came in heavy for Adam Wakefield, Alisan Porter and Hannah Huston. This left contestants Mary Sarah, Bryan Bautista and Laith Al-Saadi to compete against each other in the always-tense live instant save. In the first three-pronged approach to the Twitter voting frenzy of the season, Sarah started things off with a cover of Carrie Underwood’s “Something in the Water.” She was followed by Bautista singing Miguel’s “Adorn” and Al-Saadi’s classic rock cover of Bob Dylan/Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along the Watchtower.”
After the trio finished, viewers had just one commercial break to decide which of them would move on for a shot to win it all. Laith Al-Saadi was selected to move forward. He was the last chance for coach Adam Levine to keep his team in the competition. Now, with Al-Saadi in the finals, each coach has one artist in the top four with Wakefield representing Team Blake Shelton, Porter representing Team Christina Aguilera, Huston representing Team Pharrell Wiliams and Al-Saadi representing Team Adam.
Next week, the remaining four will compete in the finals.
